Color Purple

Famous quotes containing the words color and/or purple:

    The intellect,—that is miraculous! Who has it, has the talisman: his skin and bones, though they were of the color of night, are transparent, and the everlasting stars shine through, with attractive beams.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Even Lust the Master of a hardned Face,
    Blushes if thou beest in the place,
    To darkness’ Curtains he retires,
    In Sympathizing Night he rowls his smoaky Fires.

    When, Goddess, thou liftst up thy wakened Head,
    Out of the Mornings purple bed,
    Thy Quire of Birds about thee play,
    And all the joyful world salutes the rising day.
    Abraham Cowley (1618–1667)
